Animal Collective - Tangerine Reef | Reactions | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS
Community Rating0 Votes0

Animal Colective have always been one of the more experimental acts in music, trying things completely unexpected and unlike anything else out there, and they continue those experimental ways with their second audiovisual album, Tangerine Reef (made in collaboration with Coral Morphologic). I can’t stress enough how much this is an album that needs to be heard in conjunction with Coral’s accompanying visuals. Their slow motion recording of bright, extraterrestrial looking coral is stunning and it helps really bring to life Animal Collective’s spacey, almost dreamlike production. It’s a soundscape that’s full of abstract synths, ethereal vocals, and tons of open space that lead you to feel like you’re floating in a vacuum or sensory deprivation tank. It’s strange to say the least and almost hallucinogenic in nature; a perfect fit in one of those old school sci-fi flicks. Alone, there’s no way I’d be able to make it through either the audio or visual part of the project but together they create a mesmerizing loop that stands as art as much as it does music. Tangerine Reef is something that’d need to be experienced to be fully understood – there’s nothing else like it.

THECLECTIK – Analog Heart In A Digital World Reaction
THECLECTIK's latest is a mad mix of hip-hop fusion that may sound crazy on paper, but it works in execution; and the project's to the point lyrics about navigating society in an ever more disconnected world make for one of the more intriguing listens of the year so far.Read full review

Gorillaz – The Now Now Reaction
There are some folksy moments on the album but for the most part it all has a heavy funk flavor to it and paired with their smooth synths and soft melodies, it makes for some The Gorillaz's most unassuming and non-threatening music yet.Read full review

We are positive
Opposite of what I’m feeling
Hopefully I won’t forget to breathe out there
Trust the people though I am not like them
